I am sure that any words I could give you right now will probably not ease your pain and deep grief. But please know I like everyone else here will listen to you as you work through this for as long as you need. Try to have a good day and you can PM me if you need a listening ear. I am sitting here doing nothing today and would be willing to give you my phone # if you have no one to talk to.

oh, no... I have no words that could possibly ease your pain, but I will send a prayer for you and your brother and ask Him to give you solace. (((edie)))

Edie, your PMs are full, but if you need someone to talk to, any time day or night, let me know and I will share my number. Losing a brother is like losing a limb. (I hope your brother finds mine, who also left this world too early after a hard and dignified battle.)
I was thinking about you, before hearing this news. And now I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.
Much love and millions of hugs to you, my friend.

Thank you everybody for all your hugs and messages, they all helped so much. I am sure that it is something that it will take me some time to get used to as all happened so quickly over just a month so we are all still in shock. I feel pretty much cried out for now, and we managed to have a tranquil close family Christmas Day, where he was remembered irreverently and reverently in equal measure.
Wishing everybody peace and good will also, thank you for sending them my way.
Solus, thanks for pointing out my PM blockage, have sorted it. X
